The final area we rated was short-term care, where this facility received an A-. This finished off an elite profile. Few facilities received an A- or better in each of our categories. With our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
